Jan and Terry Thompson and their youngest daughter, 15-year-old Rachel, have big dreams of spending lots of time together in their 15- by 14-foot family room.
But several years worth of games, books and other clutter are keeping that dream from coming true, so they have enlisted professional organizer Tonia Tomlin to help them realize their dream for the space.
She starts by helping them sort through the myriad of books, games, VHS tapes, DVD, CDs, cassette tapes and photos that are strewn about. The room is then cleared of all is furniture to give Tomlin plenty of room to lay out her plan to get things in tiptop shape.
The first order of business is to replace the old entertainment unit with a larger, more functional one. She also wants to bring in a new coffee table, bookshelves and desk for Rachel. Adding a splash of color to the room will complete the look and make the room cozier. See how she did below.
